For political humor
MY SON WAS FLUNKING OUT OF COLLEGE SO I TOLD HIM, “YOU WILL MARRY THE GIRL I CHOOSE.”
HE SAID, “NO.”
I TOLD HIM, “SHE IS BILL GATES’ DAUGHTER.”
HE SAID, “YES.”
I CALLED BILL GATES AND SAID, “I WANT YOUR DAUGHTER TO MARRY MY SON.”
BILL GATES SAID, “NO.”
I TOLD BILL GATES, “MY SON IS THE CEO OF THE WORLD BANK.”
BILL GATES SAID, “OK.”
I CALLED THE PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK AND ASKED HIM TO MAKE MY SON THE CEO.
I TOLD HIM, “MY SON IS BILL GATES’ SON-IN-LAW.”
HE SAID, “OK.”
AND THAT’S EXACTLY HOW POLITICS WORKS.
And that’s how we end up with idiots in charge. I stole this from whom I do not know, hope it makes someone laugh.
In America, “Liberty” means “Free to Die in Service of Capital” - Amfortas the hippie
